Hong Kong, 25 March 2014 – Set against the backdrop of leafy Hyde Park, Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London is bringing the countryside to town with the launch of a new Horse Riding Experience for guests, in collaboration with the Hyde Park Stables.
Providing fun for all the family, and keeping an eye on its younger visitors just in time for the Easter school holidays, guests staying at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park can take advantage of the hotel’s prime location on London’s famous park and enjoy horse riding in the most beautiful setting in the capital city, with over five miles of bridleways.
